    Sfc /scannow command prompt


    I ran the sfc /scannow command prompt on my Windows 8.1 desktop. It said it could fix all of the problems.

    So, I restarted it. It said the corrupted files were in C/Windows/Logs/CBS/CBS.log. I couldn't get it to paste the files on this forum.

    Also, command prompt gave me a not that said "Note: that logging is currently not supported in offline servicing scenarios".

    Help would be greatly appreciated.

    It said there was no component store corruption detected. The operation completed successfully. Maybe, when I restarted it, it fixed the problem?

    Is it fixed now after restarting? If so it is not necessary to run restore health, but will not hurt to run it.
